In honor of the "Weddings Unveiled" Winter 2009 gorgeous black and white cover and spread, I am posting a short tutorial about the availability of BLACK FLOWERS.
Most "black" flowers are actually a deep red or purple color, are often ONLY grown by individual, avid gardeners, and unfortunately, are rarely available as CUT STEMS for events.
Examples of these GARDEN TYPES include:
Black Bearded Iris
Night Queen Tulips
Black Prince (or Black Beauty) Pansies
Read Part 2 or 4 for a brief review of the very few natural "black" flowers that are available as CUT STEMS for events and personal arrangements.
